Sashana We're always interested to know what you're reading or just bought but now we want to know the end results. Stop by and tell us your current book count and page count every so often.

How to see you current book count/page count
1.Click on the 'my books' pull down tab and click on 'stats'.
2. Click on the 'book' or 'pages' button.

Amy J. | 686 comments I'm currently reading book 23. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez and I've read 9132 pages so far (not including pages I've read in book 23)


message 3: by Sashana (new)

Sashana I've read 32 books so far with a total of 10,512 pages.


message 4: by Shay (new)

Shay | 923 comments I'm at 23,960 pages and 71 books for 2011. Page count doesn't include current books. I'm kind of in a reading slump- only finished 1 book in March. So, I keep starting books- I have 15 books I'm in some stage of reading.


message 5: by Laura (new)

Laura | 235 comments I started reading river marked by patricia Briggs. I've read 32 books page count 11,108.


message 6: by Mandy (new)

Mandy (mandypants) I just started book 60 last night. My page count is 21,291. My pile of books that I own and need to read is dwindling to a sad amount.


The UHQ Nasanta (uhqs) | 829 comments I've read about 33 books so far in 2011, and my page count says 11,505 pages.


message 8: by Kristina (new)

Kristina (kristinalawhead) Book #52 Page count 14,349


message 9: by Alicia (new)

Alicia I've read 49 books for a total of 15,944 pages. I've only counted 45 of those towards my serious reader's challenge, because a couple of them are super short novellas or children's books that I didn't feel right to count as a single entry in the challenge. My goal for the year is 300 books, so as long as I can maintain a similar pace for the next few months (and I'll probably be at a much faster pace during the summer), I should be able to make my goal! :)

This is so neat thank you for posting this!
I've not read nearly as much as everyone else
I'm on book #26 and I've read 7,012 pages so far this year.

What a great idea, I hope it's alright, I'm gonna post this idea on another group I frequent
Thanks Sashana!


message 11: by Sashana (new)

Sashana No problem, Kelly. I got the idea from talking to Shay over on the Serious Reading challenge.

I count my short books if I know I have a few long books to compensate. A 150 page book and a 1000 page book average out to almost a 600 page book. As long as my average pages per book is over 300, I have no problem counting short books. I mean, you don't get to count 1,000 page books as three books, right?

That's very true, but the ones I didn't count were all under 100 pages. I think if they were over 100 I would probably count them, because I have read some longer books, but these ones were just free e-books from an author's website. When I downloaded them in pdf they were like 30-40 pages. And I did a re-read of the children's book Charlotte's Web, which only took me an hr so I didn't count it, although I'm not sure how many pages it was. I just really want to reach my goal of 300, but I feel like I want to reach it properly, and I do want to challenge myself to read difficult books and books from many different genres. If I count too many 40 page ebooks it will feel like I cheated myself and didn't achieve my goal in the "right" way, if that makes any sense, haha.

Mckris10 | 223 comments I'm right there with you, Rachel, I am also doing very badly. My current number is 13 books and 4910 pages. I feel like I just don't have time to read at the moment.


message 17: by Sashana (new)

Sashana You guys can be like me and make it up during Spring Break. My mantra is going to be eat. read. sleep.


message 18: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments Mine too, Sashana. I plan on making a huge trip to the library on Friday. This weekend I a doing everything I need to accomplish during spring break and then the rest is all MINE. :)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments Kris, it's actually kind of depressing. Where does the time in a day go? :(

The UHQ Nasanta (uhqs) | 829 comments Page Count 13,838 + page count for No Souvenirs reread.
I've read 42 books (No Souvenirs reread doesn't add in to Goodreads count). I also didn't include short stories read online and not on Goodreads.

Denae (whimsicalmeerkat) I've read 23 books and 7450 pages in those 23 books. I'm currently working on 24-30. One of those may not be finished though. It's kind of irritating me.

Sashana I entered a 100,000 pages challenge a while back. I guess I didn't realize how much 100,000 pages is until now.


message 44: by Denae (new)

Denae (whimsicalmeerkat) Yeah, I'm wondering if I'll hit my 50,000 one.

Karen  (EarthAngel2911) (karens_923) | 119 comments Well, I think I'm definitely on target to beat last year's 30,650 pages. Right now I'm at:

49 Books
17,675 Pages
and I'm almost done with World Without End, by Ken Follett, which is over 1,000 pages. :-)

Tracey, I know what you mean. My family used to tell me they'd never seen anyone read as much as I did, but in this group, I'm just average! :-)
